One of the most common causes of data getting in the wrong hands is the loss of mobile devices that often contain a frightening amount of private information. I want to share a protection option that worked for me. Tracer tags (mystufflostandfound.com) let someone who finds your lost stuff contact you directly without exposing your private information.  I use them on almost everything I take when I travel like my phone, passport and luggage after one of the tags was responsible for getting my lost laptop returned to me in Rome one time.

Victry for Citizens
The FTC is perhaps better positioned than most government agencies to protect consumers from being victimized by companies that don't handle consumer data properly. But as this ruling makes clear, the FTC needs to make its standards clear to companies. This is definitely a victory for small business onwers like LabMD whose CEO heroically challenged the FTC for hammerinc LabMD after the company discovered some of its customer data had surfaced in a file sharing data, but never told LabMD what exactly it did wrong.
